I got an imp of this with the Earth collection and I love it! It has a definite “wet dirt” smell in the bottle that hits you first, then a dead rose smell after. On the skin the rose smell becomes soapy but isn’t unpleasant. A very clean scent that is subtle once it dries.

I love, love this scent in the imp. Smells just like earth with dried flowers sprinkled over the top. Reminds me a bit of old soapy roses. I smell the moss and darker notes more in the vial. On my skin, however, it starts smelling a little more like the perfumes my grandmothers used to wear.
Jar: Soil and dried flowers. Soapy and a little bit like soil drying in the sun.
On *my* skin: Becomes much more floral on my skin. Less dark and more rosy. Old-fashioned and brittle.

This is a very interesting scent, it smells very strongly of funeral flowers and freshly tread upon mud. It is a very dark and almost sad scent which I really like.

This is one of the most beautiful scents and one I most remember about BPAL. It smells like wet soil, and with the floral notes, reminds me of gardening all day. It has a tone of dark romance to it as well that’s hard to describe. Like I said, one of my favorites.

I have the imp of this one and I am surprised by the scent of this. In the bottle, it made me feel a bit cautious because I caught the floral smell first and I was worried that it would over power everything. When it was first on my skin, it definitely had more of the earthy quality that I was looking for and the florals were strong but not overwhelming. I’m pleasantly surprised to find that the moss smell does pop out after and blend everything together in a way that smells exactly like the wet cemeteries that I used to work in.

Wet: Earthy, it definitely has that dirt smell, though with the weird buzzing note that I associate with synthetic scents. After a second sniff, I can catch the florals. On my skin, the florals come out first, with the earthy smell as an undernote.
Dry: Mostly florals, with the faintest hint of the earthy smell. Not something I would wear regularly, though the earthy note may be a good character scent.

As BPAL “dirt” scents go, this is in the same family as Penny Dreadful and Zombi – dark, moist earth combined with soft, mournful flowers. I’m not sure what rose geranium smells like, but I definitely smell florals. There’s also something wet and salty, like the sea. Maybe the moss causes this slightly aquatic note. I like it, but the sweetly perfumed Penny Dreadful remains my favorite dirt blend.

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now?
Grave dirt, bone, decay, angel’s trumpet, and moldering scraps of shroud: the essence of finality.
A mournful, poignant scent, thick with foreboding. Soft golden amber darkened with a touch of murky black musk.
Dried roses, rose leaf, Spanish moss, oakmoss and deep brown earth.
